, if there's any special flavor here, virginia depends on defense to a greater degree in than any other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on federal spending, because governmental employment is so important, not just in northern virginia, which borders on d.c., but also in hampton roads, the hampton roads area off virginia beach and the surrounding localities. host: what are the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most larger population states, there are many states in one. you have northern virginia, which is about a third of the state's population, now produces 30% of the vote, if not more. that has a low-debate. that particular population is national and international in scope. it is the highest income region. it has the people with the highest educational levels in the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to and tidewater, roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is both white-collar and blue-collar, also has a large african-american population. and it also ha
with the increase taxes that we would see, do you reversed. as well as the deep defense cuts, which is something that would really impact the area dramatically. george mason and stephen fuller, one of the preeminent economists in our area said the defense cuts could cause a recession in virginia and almost double the unemployment numbers. bridget has been several -- rigid has been scary -- very successful in having a low unemployment rate. jobs is the number one priority. that is why we are very courageous that the numbers of supporters in for mitt romney this year. >> does your canada have to win the county to win virginia? guest: i don't know we have to, i expect we will. it was only a narrow margin that president obama won loudoun, the last time and it really was an aberration. virginia republicans have been winning loudoun county in 2009 when governor bob mcdonnell won this area, and then in 2010, of course our congressman frank wolfe, he is extremely popularhe is of course on the ticket this year. he always wins resoundingly. in 2011, we swept all of the state and local seats here in this y
of the federal government is national defense. and i see some veterans with their hats on. all the veterans, raise your hand. \[applause] thank you. thank you for your service to our country and thank your families as well. and we need to have america keep our promises to our veterans and their families for the benefits they've errand. more over, we have new threats from washington t. sequestration deal which is threatening 2,000 jobs in virginia and our readiness. what has the senate done? absolutely nothing. no budgets for the last three and a half years. a lot of members of congress shouldn't get paid if they don't make appropriations. what does president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virginia whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. \[applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a thriving economy where businesses are prospering an
to the future in as we look at a new defense strategy as we try to work through what the roles of the different services are, defense strategy, i also remind everybody that wall street will be downsizing during this time. the army, who at the beginning of calendar year 12 was popular will go down to 490,000 in the active component by the end of 17. we have significant deployed commitments. we are downsizing our army, and we are now looking to the future. one of the main things is granted make sure we have the right mix but i always talk about fashion executive arm and i really pay a lot of attention to. that's in strength, modernization and readiness. because in general terms those are the drivers of our budget. went to keep those imbalance. we want to learn from the lessons of the future, past drawdowns. some of the lessons that you can't get out of balance, because you get out of balance you start have been unready army. which leads to a hostile army, and, of course, was talk about the army of the task force and its impact and is an preparedness as it was asked to go into korea post-world war
of defense we'll reimburse you for that. >> cenk: michael, as you i hear you say that, that has to be the most obvious thing in the world. i can't imagine any of administration disagreeing except it turns out you guys did under the bush administration. does that go to show that nobody was in charge? there was wide disarray here. how can you have rumsfeld saying no or even having a debate for six hours on whether to send helicopters during hurricane katrina? isn't that very damming of how george bush ran that white house? >> it is damming as i have said, since the day i left. actually, since before then. if you went back and you found there is a march 2003 memo from me to tom ridge. gave the same memo later to michael chertoff that said if you keep fema this position and you keep this command structure that currently exists, fema will fall. it is exactly what we did. you now have this huge bureaucracy that fema is a part of. now, that said, congress has tried to correct it. i think congress learned from katrina t
at the defense of our country. but it is not just the military. there's some things -- look at our transportation system that government does better, where the role of government is necessary to bring all of us together because what is a government? the government is just us working together to solve problems and to create a better america. so this anti-government rhetoric from paul ryan, from the tea party, hating government and from mitt romney, that's what he's all about. hurricane sandy proves that is dangerous. not just wrong. dangerous. dangerous for america. think of hurricane sandy. speaking of, we'll talk to ray stojic from the weather channel next on the "full court press." >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." live on your radio and current tv. >>only on current tv. dose of politics from a fresh perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your high
have some defense contractors as well. security is always a big issue. for example, my parents were both world war ii vetrans. you find a lot of veterans in new hampshire. the important thing is to look at the record in comparison to record. president obama has a great record on national security and taking down the leadership of al qaeda, our enemies. people came into our country and killed 2000 of our citizens. at the same time, look at mitt romney in what he is proposing is trillions of dollars in defense spending that the military is not even asking for. he is looking at the old way of conducting military affairs. he is still talking about the ways the navy operated in 1917, as opposed to the security threats that face us today in the country in 2012, and what is the most effective way of protecting our people and our country in 2012. look at the rhetoric, as opposed to the record. if you look of the record, you will support president obama. host: kathy sullivan with the democratic national committee, thank you for your time. we will continue our conversation about the state of
is doing well, everywhere. he is is really hitting hard defense spending in southeastern, virginia. the tidewater area where you have a lot of defense contractors and a lot of military families. hitting on all of the cylinders in virginia right now. >> sean: last quick question, does romney ryan take wisconsin? >> i think they have a good shot at doing so. the numbers are looking good. president obama is spending a lot of time there which shows he is deeply worried about it. wouldn't be spending time if he were getting away with a state easily. one other thing, too, the president is going to make a stop in superior wisconsin in the northwestern part of the state. i'm convinced he thinks minnesota is at play. that is a place you go in order to affect duluth, minnesota. i think it is a very smart play on the president's part. not only a part of wisconsin that is important but also saying i need to get there because i may be seeing minnesota slip away from me as well. >> sean: i'm ready for game day. let's get it on. thanks for being with us. >> let's do it. >> sean: we now know that
with what mr. gregg said. the natural resources defense council ranked two of the beaches among best in the country for two years in a row. >> do have any advice on how to deal with these issues in the state? >> one of the students is my daughter. she is interested in these issues. i think delaware is a tremendous place. we have beautiful places, a beautiful environment and we have to work hard to make sure we're protecting that. i think a great environment is a bonus in terms of economic development. gov. peterson past the coastal zone act. people thought that was an economic -- it was an anti-jobs. it turned out to be the opposite. because we have such a beautiful delaware bay, businesses want to be here. that is why we're fake -- focused on the bayshore initiative. one of the objections i have is the thing of the power plant in the coastal zone. the pollutants are sulfur trade we have done is we have waived the requirement to put that manufacturing facility in the coastal zone. we did it under some crazy theory that this was great energy. i would say that jack -- let's follow the
on defense and more than the pentagon says we need. $25 trillion tax cuts would make president george w. bush look like a banker. he must have been asleep at the switch. you said like jerry mcguire "show me the money." you are the business guy. see me back after the election. who can take you seriously? here is my budget although it is not. see me about it after the election. the reason is there are only three options. if you want to repeal tax exemptions you have to cut the tax exemptions on the middle- class and governor romney says he will raise those taxes. or you can do what they have always done in just let the deficit explode again. when the economy goes it'll be a problem. or you could just gut the federal budget. gut funding for education. gut the student loan program. i spent $3 billion of your money to separate the human genome. he know how much economic activity it has generated? $790 billion. barack obama wants to raise it. they want to cut its. one thing they have not disavowed is they intend to cut medicaid by 33% over 10 years and get back to the state of ohio. medicaid provid
online chat, the question is last week the defense of marriage act was struck down by the courts. do you support this law, and do you believe that marriage is only between man and a woman? brad schneider? schneider: i believe two people -- life is hard. raising a family is hard, having a career is hard. having a partner to do that together, having someone to be standing by your side in tough times but also in good times. if two people want to commit for a lifetime, god bless them. >> i don't want to prevent two loving individuals from having a life together. one of the reasons why i supported, in essence, a piece of legislation that would allow domestic partners to have health benefits and be able to be on their partner's health benefits, and i've come forward to say i believe that civil unions should be acceptable. so we want to make sure that they have these rights, but i do believe marriage is between a man and a woman. >> i believe two people who want to make this commitment, it should be marriage. this is why the human rights campaign gave me their endorsement. >> moderator: congres
in that capacity and he is one of the few republicans who looks at the defense budget and can make a strong case for ways to cut spending on defense. he is intriguing to a lot of voters as a result. host: let's talk about this race for a second. guest: ed is one of the hardest working people if not the hardest in the coming negation. joe coors has put in $3 million into his own race and he is from the coors beer family. he has made a point of saying that he built his own fortune in the manufacturing business. they are also competing in a newly we don. -- a newly redrawn district. it includes points west of the city of denver. all accounts are that the congressman has a fight on his hands but he is up to the task. this is the third congressional district, southern colorado and what we call the western slopes, west of the continental divide. that has incumbent tipton and sal pace. pace is also from the state house of representatives. that's another to keep an eye on. host: next caller, jan from louisville, tenn. caller: no one ever mentions ever mentionsbenghazi. -- about benghazi. i have not read
of defense. we talk with all the governors in the affected states as well as an awful lot of the mayors. i can tell you confidently that the federal government, state government, local government, they are doing everything in their power to coordinate relief as rapidly as we can do so many people who have been devastated by this storm. [applause] as tragic as it is, my mom, god rest her soul, she said, joe, out of something bad, something good will look --, if you look hard enough. my state of delaware was hit. it is a low-lying state. the hurricane went on shore about 30 miles from rehoboth to, in new jersey. my state, where my in-laws used to live, where my brothers and sisters live, they were hit pretty badly. i have a sister in law and family who live in ocean city, new jersey. you saw how badly they were hit. it is kind of amazing -- it is kind of amazing. a call yesterday with all the governors and mayors, it warmed my heart. you had the governor of delaware, the governor of connecticut, the governor of pennsylvania, democrats and republicans, and they were hurt. the governor of mary
eventually take. but the most senior people of government worked on it. secretary of defense chairman of the joint cheats and secretary of state and senator john mccain looks at this and said clearly the administration acted this way to hide something. >> this is a classic scandal where almost every day and another shoe drops. i think it could be bad as water gate and one of our veterans said no one died in water gate. they have a point. >> yesterday white house press secretary jay carny said the president is anticipating the results of the f.b.i.'s investigation. back to you. >> gretchen: just to carry this story further. we saw the spokesperson for the state department said that the highest level of people were involved in this. i am not so sure that is a good admission to make. if the highest people were involved including the secretary of state and secretary of defense and possibly the vice-president and president, and all of this happened on their watch. i am not sure it is good to admit. >> steve: it is clrer and clearer that mistakes were made leading up to it and that night as
at it differently. and, you know, in a weird defense of mitt romney, in a weird defense of mitt romney, he was answering a deficit question there. he wasn't thinking about fema at all. >> right. in fact, he tried to dodge it a little bit. >> i think that's a really crucial because to me when i think about fema and disasters i'm absolutely confronted by these two americas, the katrina/fema reaction and the sandy/fema reaction and the reality is to argue there hasn't been a significant political response to the significance of fema by different governments and it's not split down party lines. it's simply not true. there was a really great article in "mother jones" that took you through -- >> the development of fema competence. >> right. and who had headed fema and the way that presidents had appointed those fema heads were directly related to how they perceived their significance. so, for example, george bush actually allocated michael brown who was the former -- i just had to read this out, because i was just blown away. michael brown who was the former commissioner of judges and stewards f
to sequester those automatic defense cuts. listen to this. >> the strong american military, so strong no one would think of testing it. so strong that people would rather meet us on the bargaining table than on the battlefield that is essential to us and to the world. unlike the president, i will will restore that funding to our military. >> mitt romney has also been in virginia to help george allen get elected to the u.s. senate. allen is a former senator and governor of virginia. and he is trailing right now in the real clear politics average of polls to another former governor of virginia. democrat tim cane by about 0.8 points. the two men have raised about $30 million combined. and more than 40 million will dollars has been spent by outside groups on that race alone. allen getting help from mitt romney. tim cane getting help from the democratic ticket as well. >> folks, understand one thing, barack and i believe as i believe you do. that we only have one sacred obligation as americans. to equip those we send to war and care for them and their families when they comb home. >> so you saw m
of defense. this is the doon. you can see the water and waves are huge. they sound huge and they are crashing like i have never heard before. but the water is coming up close to my feet and 20 feet in front of me is a boardwalk that lays between the boardwalk and places to eat. if the water comes up much better businesses will be in trouble. the wind is strengthening no one is around in delaware. people are hunkered down. schools are closed and businesses closed. mandatory closure by state order by 6:00. there is no reason for anyone to be on the road. our hotel has power right now. we have not had a chance to survey more damage because it is dark out. they are calling in reenforcement from louisiana and alabama and red cross is urging people to do while they are power and phone signal, down load the red cross app. if things get hairy, just go on and use the red cross app and you can see what kind of emergency resources that you have in your area. back to you. >> peter doocy live with us in delaware. >> brian: looked leak a paining with the roaring ocean . >> steve: like a lava lamp. new york
, that the obama campaign's playing some defense there, but he can do it if he can win some combination of wisconsin, iowa or new hampshire. >> the ohio news organization poll has it a dead heat in that state, 49%-49%. and also staying in the midwest, in minnesota, mitt romney's actually sliced president obama's large lead in that state. also an independent state, 47%-44 rs 47%-44% according to "the minnesota startribune." you also add on top of that, in iowa, you have a "des moines register" endorsement which is huge. >> that was a big endorsement. >> that is a huge endorsement of that state. they haven't endorsed a republican since richard nixon in 1972. there are few endorsements that still matter. really matter. in iowa, the des moines register endorsement matters. >> not only that, look at the artwork on the front page. >> all right. thank you, barnicle. >> it's tightening up in the midwest. >> the midwest, wisconsin, minnesota. but the wild card in this thing we've already alluded to it is this storm. >> yeah. >> how does it impact early voting? power outages that might continue f
is democrats play defense. they have a number of vulnerable republicans, and then it's a game of they might -- if either member, lose one of their own, just broke even rather than eating into the 25-seat gape they need. >> back to that in a moment, but talk about individual races, and i want to begin with upstate new york outside of buffalo. winning a special election, trying to preserve a democratic seat in new york 27. >> kathy is revered in the, you know, well-loved in the democratic party because of that special election win. she's now facing a more republican district than she faced before. she's facing chris collins, eerie county executive who can be a polarizing figure saying it's a badge of honor, i'm not here to get along to move along. the republican nature of the district is probably dragging here down, even though she might be the more personable candidate in the race. >> down south florida, 18, congressman west, a tea party republican trying to keep his seat for second term. >> allen west returning against patrick murphy, not the former congressman of pennsylvania, but this is
team here and the various agencies in charge including the didn't of the defense and energy that are going to need to respond quickly. we've had a chance to talk to the regional officials of fema as well and i've talked to the governors of the potentially impacted states as well as the cities in the region. at this stage, everybody is confident that the staging process, the position of equipment that are going to be needed to respond to the storm are in place. but as craig has imp sized this hasn't hit land fall yet so we don't know where it's going to hit or where we're going to see the biggest impacts. and that's why it's so important for us to respond big and fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all the members of the team for the outstanding work that they're doing. but the other thing that makes this storm unique is we anticipate it's going to be slow moving. that means it may take a long time not only to clear but to get, for example, the power companies to get in to clear trees and put things back in place so that folks can start moving back hom
